Awesome choice, my favorite show of '83! That Throwing Stones jam is downright EVIL. Come out of the woodwork more often, willya? :)

Ditto on the T-stones...maybe a candidate for best ever. Pretty sweet Wang Dang in this show, too, if I'm not mistaken.

Sty,

Check out this TS when you get a chance. Last time I had it on I liked it better than the 15th version. I also liked the St Steve better.

Let me know if I'm way off here.

Ok, D & M! I will check it out soonest... this whole fall 83 run is supposed to be a good period for the boys...

And thanks again for your help with the lovely RTs... :)

UPDATE: I checked 'em out. I can see why you like that Throwing Stones jam, very wild and chaotic, I almost thought I was listening to an early 70's Playin' at one point, as Phil was banging away like a mean machine and Jerry was Fanning like Dakota... and then Brent came in with his tinkle bells. That's my problem: I'm really biased against that tone, and it keeps me from enjoying the tunes as much when he uses it...and BOY is he leaning on it in this TS (and the Stephen too). I almost thought he was gonna break out the theme to Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, he had the right tone for it. That's why I like the 15th and also 12/31/81 for Brent, because he mixes up the different sounds more on those shows. The playing is great on this show though, and I think it's a good recommendation for those who don't share the anti-bell bias... :)

Excellent Sty. I started seeing shows in 1981, and my first tapes were from 1979 and 1980, so I grew to appreciate the bells and whistles. Some can do without the sound though, and I understand why.

Do you have

??

If not, get it. More organ than bells. Probably the best show of 1983. I'd send you the DP, but this recording is a better listening experience.


As for 12/31/81 ..... I love the beginning. The Shakedown is near perfect, and the CR&S and Roses are very nice. Fine Iko > Playin > Terrapin to open the 2nd, and the GDTRFB is strong, but the end of the show just collapses - FOR OBVIOUS REASONS!

I'll give it another listen, and listen the Brent's role carefully ....

Ok, I'll check out that one too... but I'm playing my beloved 5/18/72 right now. :)

By 'obvious reasons' (on the 12/31/81) you don't mean that lowing cow someone let on stage for the encore? When you start longing for a Donna/Playin' War Whoop, you know things have gotten bad... ;-)
